Standard Bassimer ™ Tuning / String Setup Here are a few TIPS to help get you started. Generally the Bassimer™ is a Diad Instrument (as opposed to Triad) As you can see the Root-3rd-5th are NOT close to each other across the neck (uncomfortable at best). I  tend to play 2-note chords  (thirds or fifths)  on the middle 2 strings and let the low and high strings drone. Then I play lead work on the high strings and Bass on the low string.
